Dead swift chick

Dead chick found on ground below gutter. We have several swift nests in the roof, but this is the first dead chick we've seen. There's a dead adult swift (cause unknown)on the roof, stuck in the gutter, that's been there for a week or two.We can't remove it without going very near the nests. We don't want to risk disturbance. Chick had pieces of fine grasses in its mouth/ down its throat when found. Remarkable turtle-like wing shape.
